There were so many journalists killed in this thing, and the reasons go from the US attacking the hotel the journalists were staying at, to doing everything possible to make their work harder and riskier. I get that shit happens in wars, but dismissing the truth was the first casualty, and it ended up being a war against the truth in so many ways. And it's just a sad excuse to say it's a live or die situation when the whole thing was supposed to be over in a matter of weeks, cost nothing, and prove to be a necessity.

And yeah - the real tragedies are when the innocent families get blown up in the mix in big numbers.
